AONB: Cornwall, Tamar Valley, South Devon
Select Cities, Towns & Villages: Fowey, Polperro, Looe, Plymouth, Padstow

East Cornwall's finest
As people head down the A30 to North and then West Cornwall or drive the A38 to South Cornwall, they tend to miss out on one of Cornwall's finest areas. Part of the Cornwall AONB, the villages and beaches around Rame Head are extraordinary.

Cawsand Bay and Plymouth
The pretty coastal village of Cawsand looks out across Cawsand Bay to the South Devon coast. There are also fine views to Plymouth Sound. If you're staying in Cawsand or the local area for any period of time, we'd suggest a trip on the Cawsand Ferry to Plymouth.

Coastal walking and Whitsand Bay
There's superb walking on the South West Coast Path. Try the path south to Rame Head and then head to Whitsand Bay. Having researched and photographed most of the Cornish coast, we think this bay is one of the best.

Local attractions and day trips
In the local area, we'd recommend trips to Antony House and Mount Edgcumbe Country Park. A little further away, head for Cotehele House and Gardens and Buckland Abbey. Morwellham Quay is part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Try also a day trip to Dartmoor National Park. The Eden Project is superb. Both Looe and Polperro are within easy driving distance. Fowey is a cracker, too.

Last, visit the National Trust's Lanhydrock House and Gardens.
